ASSOCOSTIERI –BIODIESEL PRODUCERS is the representative association of producers operating in the biodiesel sector.
The Association of firms working in the field of energy Terminals was established in Rome on February 24th, 1983 thanks to the initiative of some entrepreneurs who wanted to create an organization distinguishable from the others in terms of a more strongly protection of the irreplaceable role played from the primary distribution in the national market..
WHY BIODIESEL AS A CHOICE
The Association has promoted, with the Customs and Monopoly Agency (ADM), a webmeeting to discuss the issues of greatest interest to its members, first of all the fight against illegality in the fuel sector, but also eDAS, digitization , traceability of lubricating oils and exemption from excise duty for LNG and LPG Here our press release: https://www.assocostieri.it/newsite/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/CS_ASSOCOSTIERI_e_Agenzia_delle_Dogane_e_dei_Monopoli.pdf Here the program of the event: Programma Assocostieri 18.01.21_con logo 2021_agg_13.01.20 read more

Biodiesel is the only source of renewable energy with a liquid shape and really available on the market. It is obtained from vegetal oils and can be used immediately pure and in mixture, as:
- Diesel substitute in transport sector.
- Heating fuel, without any modification of engines and boilers.
- Renewable: because it is obtained from the cultivation of oleaginous plants widely diffused;
- Biodegradable: because it is dispersible and dissolvable in the space of a few days. The waste of usual fuels persists on the contrary much longer;
- Safe: because it is guarantee of an energy efficiency as high as that of fuels and mineral combustibles;
- Efficient: because it is excellent in the performance of vehicles and heating systems.
The use of Biodiesel grants several environmental benefits in terms of:
- temperature reduction with consequent lowering of the global warming
- reduction of greenhouse gas emissions
- improvement of the energy efficiency
The Biodiesel is furthermore able to develop a virtuous circle between Agriculture, Industry and Environment and it is a diesel substitute obtained from vegetal oils. Currently Italian industry ranks second in Europe for production capacity of Biodiesel with a value which is around 2.000.000 tons per year. Moreover this value is growing in view of new ongoing investments coming from national companies.
